Star Wars mandated that robots in the future would be clearly mechanic, unnatural and talk in beeps and boobs…well Lucas was a terrible futurist
Other Sci-fi films such as A.I, Terminator and Aliens had predicted a much more accurate reality: We’re skipping the clunky tin cans and straight for Andoids that look exactly like us. Why? Because Bishop was the coolest fucking robot ever and we want one of those, that’s why. Were diving headfirst into uncanny valley with enthusiasm.
Androids that look, talk, walk and behave exactly like humans are a very real possibility coming in our lifetimes. Programmers are already creating responsive software A.I, film studio’s are already making lifelike synthetic skin textures, engineers are already manufacturing bipedal machines.
Pretty soon well add it all together and create Bicentennial man in one fell sweep…then being the typical humans we are…we’ll use them for sex.
Welcome to the future.
